    Problems after side-loading apk (not rooted)

    Hi all,

    Hoping someone can help me.

    This morning I downloaded an apk of SPB Shell 3D and installed using side-load wonder machine on my (not rooted) Atrix.

    I re-booted, and things got stuck on the At&t "Rethink Possible" white screen. I searched around and read some posts and saw that someone fixed a similar problem by calling their phone. I called mine (using another line, obviously) and was able to answer the call.

    Once I ended the call, the lock screen displayed fine. However, when I unlocked the lock screen, the only thing that was visible was the task-bar. The home-screens are black and have no icons. I can access text messages and other things in the task bar, and I have my "double-tap home button" set to Google maps and that works, but nothing else does.

    I can plug the phone into my computer via USB and the internal and SD cards show up and can be opened.

    I've heard some things about soft reboots, fastboots, adb, etc... but I'm not sure what the problem is. Maybe the .apk I installed was a bad one?

    I'm pretty frustrated and it doesn't seem anyone has had the same problem. Any help would be great.

    I'm guessing this is a bootlegged version of SPB?

    Yes, I'm assuming it was (and I guess this supports At&t's stance that non-market apps shouldn't be installed on their phones). Do you think it could have to do with the apk not being legit?

    It very well could have been a malicious app that could have infected your phone.

    This is a big reason we here at the Atrix Forums DO NOT advocate downloading/using/distributing stolen applications. We also like to support our developers in our community

    I hope it isn't a virus.. You might have to flash your phone back to stock and start over if it is.

    Thanks a lot Monsta. Hopefully it's not that, but lesson learned either way. If anyone has any other ideas, plz let me know.

    I too must condemn use of such apps, but we can try to get your phone back. Can you still long press on the home screen and add a shortcut? If so you can add the Market, then download Home Switcher, install it and run it.

    Thanks. Couldn't get anything going on the screen. After doing a bit more research and reading it seems there isn't a fix yet, so I ended up wiping the phone (as a PC user I guess I've gotten used to this sort of thing). I love how customizable Android is, but it makes setting things back up to personal spec that much harder!
